Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IH
Water is a critical component of all living cells. Interestingly, tissue membranes show a great degree of water permeability. Mammalian red cells, renal proximal tubules, and descending thin limb of Henle are extraordinarily permeable to water. Water crosses hydrophobic plasma membranes either by simple diffusion or through a facilitative transport mechanism mediated by special protein "aquaporins". Over the last decade, genes for several members of aquaporin family have been cloned, expressed, and their distribution studied in many tissues. AQP4 (MIWC, mercury-insensitive water channel) is expressed in brain and in other tissues as well.
Catalog #A3000-14
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsImmunohistochemistry: 2-10ug/ml on paraformaldehyde-fixed or 50% methanol/50% acetone-fixed sections of tissues.
Western Blot: 1-10ug/ml using Chemiluminescence technique. Note: Recommend the use of 0.5-1% milk in all primary/secondary antibody-enzyme conjugate incubations in order to suppress non-specific bands.
ELISA: 1:100,000. A3000-18 Control peptide can be used to coat ELISA plates at 50-100ng/well.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.
Control PeptideA3000-18: Aquaporin 4, Rat Control Peptide
